I need sleep

In a major way.

Small Talk Six -- What I hope to NOT teach the kiddos

Six things I say that I don't want the kids to repeat.....

Being a new mom (again!) I say this one often lately
1. Mommy's losing her mind.

Other common phrases you can find me saying
2. That's Crazy
3. WTF (especially when I'm upset about something -- but truly not that often)
4. Anything I've said about a certain In Law in vents.
5. *muttering* Stupid (fill in the blank here)
6. Craptastic.

Yeah I'm not a huge cusser, but when I do, its usually do to serious anger and I bring out the WTF.

So, what about you? What do you say that you don't want your kids to repeat?

She is here

After preterm labor issues, blood pressure problems, and multiple other not so fun things, Calleigh is here and she's healthy.

Born August 25th, weighing 6lbs 3 oz and 19 inches long, we welcomed our third and last daughter.

Thanks for all the thoughts. I have tons to catch up on that didn't get done while we awaited her birth. It will take me a while to get back in the game I'm sure. Still recovering from my c-section and coping to life with 3!

For now, I'll leave you with a few pics. Enjoy.

That is our current goal with this pregnancy.

Once we hit that, then we will set our sights higher.

Keep baking Calleigh. Keep baking.

Will post more info shortly

PSF -- Sisters

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

From Day one, You've been attached.

You've loved each other.

You've shared talks with each other.

You've plotted together.

You play together

You irritate the snot out of each other.

AT the end of the day -- You curl up and Fall asleep together, no matter how mad you were before bedtime.

And in 8 weeks (or so) you will share all of the above with a new little sister.

I'm so upset

We took Izzie to the dr today for a routine repeat lead check. Her last two levels had shown a significant decrease and we were in the safety zone. BUT they wanted to keep checking every 6 months to make sure things stayed okay.

I was NOT worried about this test.

I guess I should have been.

We are up 3 points from the last time and back over the "safety" zone.

I just don't even know what to think.

Love is in the air

Tee Hee.

I'm off for the weekend.

My anniversary is Sunday, along with Father's day. Will catch up with the blog world Monday!

Toddler Madness

As posted Here, Some days Just don't end well when you have a toddler.

I decided I should follow up with pictorial evidence of that "bad" day and also, Stephanie know you have proof that your daughter isn't the only one who loves permanent markers!

Izzie's Artwork. After bath. Gotta love Sharpies.


And on her legs


AND the allergic reaction to the Dawn, she had poured all over her head


Who Is...

This little lady who has replaced my baby faced baby girl?


Welcome Third Trimester

I try not to Whine. I know that I am extremely lucky to be pregnant. To be able to carry this baby to delivery. When so many of my dear friends cannot.

I try to revel in each little kick, each tiny detail of the life growing inside of me, because I know this is the last time I will experience this miracle.

But, unfortunately, once the third trimester hits, especially it seems the more children you have, there is just so many aches, pains, and other things to whine about.

So I've made myself a promise. For each gripe/whine I have, I'll come up with a positive too. We are talking pregnancy here folks, so there might be some TMI.


  1. Peeing 5 drops every 30 minutes.
  2. Sciatic pain
  3. The unability to get comfy to sleep for long stretches of time.
  4. Pelvic pressure
  5. Braxton Hicks. Fake contractions. FAKE my hind end.
  6. 3rd Trimester headaches

The YAY's
  1. Feeling baby girl moving.
  2. Knowing there is only 10 weeks (or less) until I meet the new little one.
  3. Getting to sort through baby goodness again.
  4. Big Boobies! (The best part of pregnancy/nursing)
  5. No PUPPPs this time!
  6. An excuse to eat WHATEVER I want, WHENEVER I want. (and finally feeling like doing just that)

PSF -- Who Needs a Son?

Dear Sweet Caity. You are Our first born. Our sweet girl. But you, my dear are a TOTAL TOMBOY. It is so fun to watch you as you grow and see JUST how different you are from your sister. To see your personality blossom.

While Playing with Izzie outside, you discovered several DEAD crawdads in the yard. My assumption is that they either crawled up from the neighbors pond OR one of the cats brought them over as gifts.


Why most children (especially girly girl ones) would run screaming from this discovery -- YOU relished in it and had to have a cup to keep your "crabs" in so you could show grandpa.


Following your crustacean discovery. You went on the search for more offensive creepy crawlies -- ICK.





You are a Connundrum to me sometimes. I never know what you will come up with next -- but I love every day of finding new discoveries with you.

We drove by the hospital the other day and Caity remarked that that was where we "got Izzie from"

I told her that that is where we would bring Calleigh home from too. Her response

"Only if she's clean though, mama."

So Beware of hospitals giving out dirty babies.
